On July 9, 2010, Out of the Box presented an outstanding production of the classic, 1920’s drama, Rain, by John Colton and Clemence Randolph. In a two week run, audience attendance doubled during the second week because of the great word-of-mouth publicity it received. Rain is the play adaptation of the Somerset Maugham short story, Miss Sadie Thompson. It depicts the psychological battle between good and evil, free will and religious imprisionment as prostitute Sadie Thompson clashes head-on with Reverend Alfred Davidson. Below are some pictures of the production.
